It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a New Book!

Okay, I have neither a bird nor a plane for you today. But I do have a new book release!

Shift is officially out there in the wide world today, and I might be a tiny bit overexcited at the opportunity to share it with everyone. Woohooooo!

Here’s the description:

Shift Cover - Final Front Only

Seventeen-year-old Perry Teasdale is a dreamer.

She’s not the kind of dreamer who waltzes through fields of wildflowers, twirling her skirts in a starry-eyed daze; or the kind who aspires to be the biggest rock star the world has ever known (not that she’d complain, if that accidentally happened).  She’s the kind of dreamer who can’t get a decent night’s rest, because her sleep is flooded with scenes from other worlds—ones that seem as real as life itself.

Mind-blowing dreams may sound like loads of fun, but when they start to bleed into Perry’s waking hours—confusing the line between dream and reality, and keeping her in a sleep-deprived fog no amount of caffeine can cure—Perry’s not exactly thrilled.

Try as she might to shake the dreams from her mind, they keep gaining speed, growing ever more vivid and intense…until that hazy boundary between real and imaginary fades away, and Perry is forced to consider the impossible: Her dreams seem real, because they are.

When disaster strikes, sending Perry’s newfound normalcy into a tailspin, she takes the only logical path left: a whirlwind tour of the multiverse, scouring an ever-growing assortment of alternate realities for the missing piece—the missing person—to put her life together again.

Along the way, Perry enlists the help of an ancient wise woman (who may be a tad homicidal); a nerdy-in-all-the-right-ways mathematician (who knows all of Perry’s secrets, even before introducing himself); and a sword (because you can never go wrong with a sword).

At times hilarious—at times heartbreaking—Shift is sure to be, well, one of those two things.

Interested in reading Shift? Yay! You can find it here:

I hope you enjoy the story! Any help spreading the word is also hugely appreciated.

Happy reading! 🙂

ARCs Are Going Out! Grab One While You Can…

What’s an ARC, you ask? An advance copy of my upcoming new young adult sci-fi release, Shift.

What’s Shift, you ask? It’s a story about parallel worlds, complete with a spunky 17-year-old heroine, a lovably brainy guy, plenty of nerdy banter, and all kinds of alternate-reality shenanigans.

Sounds up your alley? You can read the official book description here, and sign up for a free ARC (in exchange for an honest review) here. Copies are limited, so be speedy about it. 🙂Shift Cover - Final Front Only

A New Release is Coming! Happy Dance!

After many moons in the writing cave, I have exciting news: A new book release is on the horizon! I know, I know…It’s been an eternity in the making. I hope you’ll agree that Shift, my new young adult sci-fi/fantasy novel, was worth the wait.
